1 person had — diarrhea, nausea and vomiting
“I had a turkey/Swiss sandwich with lettuce, tomato, jalapeño peppers, and mustard. This was on Saturday night. I started feeling extremely nauseas on Sunday, the next day, around 5pm. My boyfriend drove 2 1/2 hours home and I was puking the whole way home. Got home and had severe vomiting... and diarrhea and severe stomach pain to the point I had to go to the ER. I had a high white blood cell count so my body has been fighting an infection. Doctor said it was either a virus or food poisoning. I could barely walk and was also very weak and was having trouble breathing. They took X-rays, but there were no blockages. I had two IV bags with Benadryl and fluid which helped a little and then was released to go home. Definitely one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had. It is Monday and I am slowly recovering. ”
“few hours after eating I experienced vomiting and diarrhea. Started Sunday March 17th to current March 20th ”

“I ate potbelly last night, around 8pm, I got the regular turkey club.. around 1 am I woke up and threw everything up, after that I have been uncontrollably throwing up every 1 hour. Diarrhea only once. Fever and cold sweats since 1 am. ”
“Ordered a smoked ham original sandwich w/ everything at around 1:30PM, ate it at around 1:45PM. At around 5 or 5:30, I started experiencing mild stomach cramps, and those progressed to severe over the course of the next 30-45 minutes. From that point forward, I had diarrhea fairly constantly (made... for a really great New Years Eve). It's been about 20 hours since the symptoms started, and they're starting to abate a bit but haven't gone away, and I definitely can't leave the house. ”

“Ate half of an Impossible Whopper, after a quick nap, woke up to non-stop diarrhea and vomiting, hiving and very sensitive to motion, was not able to hold a sip of water and did not seem to end or come out.
I had no health insurance, so ran around town... trying to qualify for a ER visit, it was my first time because I’m able to handle a lot of things and rarely get sick; I was honestly scared.
After going to work the next week, I over heard one co-worker state she had to go to the ER for eating the Impossible Whopper as well, she was trying it for her ulcers. ”
